A wideband signal processor based on a common module concept is presented that has applications to both radar and signal-intercept applications. This processor is suitable for the coherent pulse compression of wideband radar signals, the intercept/characterization of spread-spectrum radar and communication signals, and the generation of the radar ambiguity function. This paper describes the theory, operation, and application of the processor, which is composed of several modules, including a 1-GHz-bandwidth wideband correlator module, a 200-MHz four-product correlator module, a radio frequency receiver and waveform/transmitter module, and a digital processing and operator interface module for use in field demonstrations.
